Abstract

Long-distance imaging through atmospheric turbulent medium is affected mainly by blur and spatiooral movements in the recorded video, which have contradicting effects on the temporal intensity distribution, mainly at edge locations. For automatic surveillance, a correct model of the background can contribute to a successful background subtraction often applied for the extraction of the moving targets. Following a recent study of modeling the background due to atmospheric effects, we further examine here experimentally the effect of image de-blurring on the model using an automatic image restoration method implemented to real video signals recorded from a variety of imaging distances.
